Star in the East Study

Star in the East (study) 14”x18” oil

Perhaps the star in the East that was followed by Magi was an angel. Here we are looking down over the back of this angel as it begins its descent into the clouds above countryside near Bethlehem. Angels are not only challenging because we don’t have much to study to picture them, but also as beings of light. We normally see things because they reflect light from their surface, however angels have been said to be a sources of light. I enjoy the challenge of creating that which has not been seen or taking the viewer to places that cannot be reached.
